5 cards in 5 days with WOW | Masking Technique

Hello there!

 It Is Ola and I am back with my final card for my series of   ”5 cards in 5 days with WOW ”.  Today I am going to show you how to create a floral card using Masking Technique.

For this cardmaking tutorial you will need:  White Card blank  White cardstock  Gold pearlescent card  WOW Embossing pad  Heat tool  Embossing powders  Floral stamp set

I have started this card by stamping and fussy cutting the  flowers of a scrap piece of paper to create a mask.  Masking technique is used to create illusion that one object is behind the other. I will be creating vision that one of the flower is behind other, as well as my leaves will be behind my bouquet.  Let me show you!

I have stamped large flower on the top left corer of white cardstock with WOW clear embossing pad and gently covered with mask. Then I have stamped smaller flower on top of my mask shifting slightly to the right. When I remove my mask it looks like the smaller flower is hidden behind larger flower.  Lets repeat all steps on other side of cardstock.  When all flowers are stamped and embossed , time to stamp the leaves.  I have covered both large and small flower with mask and stamped my leaves in the way that some of them are stamped directly on the mask and some not. When I removed all the masking I have created illusion that leaves are behind the flowers.  Now is the time to add sentiment and assemble my card. I have used Simon Says Stamp sentiment stamp and stamped using black versa mark ink.  I have mounted a piece of gold pearlescent card onto card blank before adding my top panel.  To finish my card I have added pink gemstones in the center of all flower and here we have floral card using Masking Technique.

”Happy Birthday” gift & card video tutorial by Ola

Hello Guys

Thank you for stopping by and I hope you will enjoy my project for this months challenge – Melt it!

 This month I have decided to create a Happy Birthday gift- ring and handmade card to go along with it.

Here it is:

For my card I have used a light turquoise colour card stock to create my card blank and I die cut  the top panel using a scalloped rectangle nesting die.    WOW sentiment stamp set offers a great selection of sentiments. I picked the one that reads ”Have the Sparkliest birthday ever!!” and heat embossed it using Metallic Silver Regular Embossing Powder.

To create my butterfly embellishments, I have melted ”Melt it!” ,Primary Bluetiful Regular and Mint Macaroon embossing powders before adding my mixture to the 3D butterfly moulds. Just before adding my mixture to the moulds I had sprinkled a bit of WOW Sprinkles called ,,Twinklebelle”

While the butterflies were setting I used Simon Says Stamp ”Brush Strokes” stamp set to emboss it three strokes horizontally on my card.

I have finished my card by adding butterflies using  glue dots.

Finally, the gift and the card is complete.

Hope you enjoyed and get inspired!

Have a great day.
